Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-This "Cinderella" story from India has a nice twist involving a mirror that would only reflect a true and loving heart, and is passed down to Chanda by her dying mother. When the prince asks for the young woman's hand, her evil stepmother tries to substitute her daughter at the marriage ceremony, but the mirror shows the truth. The bilingual text is in Hindi and English. The lavish illustrations are vivid and romantically realistic. The setting and the different plot make this worth considering as an alternative version of a favorite classic tale.-Carol Johnson Shedd, formerly at National Outreach Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
